Jobs: Language Acquisition: 2 Co-Editors, Journal of Child Language

Editor for this issue: Christy Bird <christylinguistlist.org>

The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Journal of Child Language, published by Cambridge University Press, was
launched in 1974 by Professor David Crystal. Since then it has established
itself as a leading international journal publishing original research on all
aspects of the scientific study of language behaviour in children. The journal
has successfully forged links between many different areas of research
including psychology, linguistics, cognitive science and anthropology. This
interdisciplinary approach spans a wide range of interests: phonology,
phonetics, morphology, syntax, vocabulary, semantics, pragmatics,
sociolinguistics, or any other recognised facet of language study. In addition
to articles, the journal contains a Brief Research Reports section and an
occasional section containing a review article plus commentaries by a range
of other researchers.

Professors Philip Dale and Edith Bavin will be stepping down as editors over
the course of 2011. In order to ensure a smooth transition, we are now
inviting applications from those interested in taking on the editorship of the
journal from any time after 1st January 2011 (exact start date open to
negotiation), for an initial term of five years. The new Editor(s) will
'shadow' Edith and Philip from autumn 2010 so they might familiarise
themselves with the working practices. All submissions are handled using
the online peer-review system ScholarOne Manuscripts. The Editors are
supported by an experienced Editorial Assistant and a team of six Associate
Financial support in the form of an annual stipend will be available from
Cambridge University Press.

Attention to detail, excellent people skills and the ability to meet deadlines
are essential. We are open to applications from individuals or editorial
partnerships (based in North America, the UK or elsewhere).

Interested applicants are invited to send a brief CV and covering letter to
Cambridge University Press at the email addresses below. Covering letters
should outline how the applicant(s) would approach the editorship, including:
- thoughts on the future content and strategic direction of Journal of Child
Language, development of the journal's international profile and aims and
- the day to day running of the journal editorial office
- any institutional support available, including financial support and time
allowed for journal work
- details of any prior journals experience

The total document should comprise no more than five pages.

Application Deadline: 31-Jul-2010
